A Simple Teen’s Birthday Indeed!

A week and a half ago my daughter from another mother (me) became a teenager.  She’s not a typical teenager, nor a girly girl that needs to have the make-up, nor the heels, nor the fashion named clothes.  She prefers jeans, t-shirt, and sneakers… and I love her bunches!  She reminds me of myself and no matter what she doesn’t fall into peer pressure.  That’s my girl, Leila.  Now lets go play paintball again!

It wasn’t until this week that I realized Leila’s birthday is one day after my military anniversary.  I was beside myself when I shockingly remembered that July 28th was my 23rd anniversary since joining the 1% club.  WoW!  I’m still in shock… I was in the reserves for 16 of those years and so far I am still LIVING THE DREAM.
